A recipe from Pinehurst Inn Bed & Breakfast in Bayfield, Wisconsin.
We love all things Tex-Mex, Southwestern and Mexican, and since we own a bed and breakfast, we like to experiment with these flavors for breakfast, because really, who does not love Mexican food for breakfast? The South of the Border Breakfast Lasagna is layered like a lasagna, thus the name. We tried a number of recipes, but ultimately adapted the Amazing Mexican Breakfast Casserole from Gimme Some Oven to come up with this recipe. It is made with a homemade red enchilada sauce from Gimme Some Oven, which is super easy to make and oh so delicious, but feel free to use your favorite red or green enchilada sauce, it is totally up to you. We generally use ground beef in this recipe because we like to incorporate different meats at breakfast so we are not always using bacon and sausage (but, I must say, we love our bacon and sausage locally made from Sixth Street Market in Ashland, Wisconsin). You can easily substitute breakfast sausage, chorizo, ground turkey, pork or chicken, or additional veggies in place of the ground beef, the options are endless. Although not shown in the picture, we typically top it with some chopped cilantro (my husband is not a fan of cilantro so I left it off for this final taste test). Serve it with sour cream, salsa, slice avocado, guacamole, or any other of your favorite toppings. The South of the Border Breakfast Lasagna is great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and the leftovers (if there are any) are amazing.
We love that you are checking out our recipes. I am always adding recipes (most are breakfast dishes, but sometimes I incorporate some old or new favorites that probably will not make it to our breakfast table), so check back with us often to see what we are up to, or better yet, come stay with us and experience our three course breakfast first hand, as well as our daily afternoon snack. I am having a great time experimenting with recipes that may be included in our three course breakfast lineup, some traditional some not, but I always strive for tasty. Happy Eating!
